Latino College Preparatory Academy opened in 2001 for high school students in grades 9th through 12th. The mission is to enable underachieving high school English language learners to succeed at their highest potential. This is done through critical thinking, computer, leadership and communication skills in English and Spanish.
Along with core subjects students have the opportunity to participate in computer arts, Spanish, soccer, basketball, softball, track, baseball, physical education classes, volleyball, student government, and science & technology.
The parent with students attending Latino College Preparatory Academy is mixed opinions. Some parents have had a great 4 years at the school with the best teachers and academic program for their child. Others saw the teachers differently. They stated that lower expectations than what was originally discussed were what the school was striving for and they decided to leave. Students on the other hand, really like their teachers.
The Academic Performance Index showed an increase in academic growth from 653 to 669. The statewide goal in California is a score of 800.
The California Standards Tests is used to learn if students are mastering core subjects. The various tests are given to 2nd through 11th grades in English, grades 2nd through 7th are given tests in math, and science tests are administered to students in grades 5th, 8th, and 10th, while history tests are given to students in 8th and 11th grades.
Of the test results available they were all below the state averages except one. The 11th grade students passed their Geometry exam with 19% against the state average of 9%.
With the low test scores and the opinion of a few parents it would be in your best interest to learn more about the curriculum as well as why the scores were below state average before enrolling your child.
